A suspect who robbed a Kentucky Fried Chicken pointed a handgun at the manager and said, “You know what I want,” Boca Raton Police said.

The manager said that he left the KFC at 1601 N. Federal Highway Monday at about 2 a.m. and went to his car to put some stuff in the trunk, police said in a statement. But after he went and locked up the business and returned to his car, placing the weekend deposits inside it, he was confronted by a male suspect, police said.

After the suspect pointed the large-barreled black handgun at him, the victim gave him the bags with the money – as well as his car keys and a cell phone, which the suspect threw over a wall, according to police.

The suspect also pulled a gold necklace from the manager’s neck before he jumped over the wall on the west side of the KFC, getting away with the necklace and an undetermined amount of cash, police said.

The manager was not injured, and his keys and cell phone were found, police added.
